it. if he hopeful we will get a last minute deal? stephen moore. look, you are here earlier this month and said we will be back here talking with you. >> here we are. ashley: we are getting inklings of some sort of deal being put together. >> i heard for the first time what you just heard. the framework of that deal -- i think that was something that probably could make it through the senate and the house. nancy pelosi will have to deliver anywhere from 50-100 votes from her democratic office. but, of course, let's not forget that gets us around the immediate problem of what they are calling the fiscal cliff. this is just act one. then we deal with the dead ceiling. this was just the idea of an opening bid, if you will. i think it will be good news for the market if a deal like this were enacted. shibani: you are talking about the markets. i want to ask you about their role in getting to this point. we have seen steep declines. multi- hundred point the kleins in some instances, we have not been met in this case. is this part of the reason we are in this position? >> well, yo

solve our economic woes? let's ask mr. steven moore, writer for the with a wall street journal. i heard that quote and howard dean, dr. dean is one of the most liberal on the planet and saying, and i thought about that a little bit. does he mean everyone's taxes have to go up, including people who don't pay taxes now? >> a great question, because as you know, eric, about 40% of americans who file tax returns now don't pay any income tax, but i also saw that clip live when he said it and kind of mouth open, i was kind of shocked, but he's at least being an honest liberal here. one of the things about this fiscal cliff debate that bothers me, even if we raise taxes on the top two or three% and the president may reveil. then you go into 2013 and i heard the discussion on the debt which was fantastic. even if we do the tax increases on the rich they're not going to raise that much money and not that many people that make over 400 $500,000 a year and that means if the liberals want a fund these new programs and they want to bring this trillion dollar debt down. you know where they have to go
